When I saw this cute and festive Candy Cane-inspired nail look, I just had to post about it!!! I am all about getting festive and Christmas-themed for the Holidays. So, I am dying to recreate this look. My time up until Christmas is absolutely packed. But the next free evening (which should be tomorrow night), I am going to settle in and recreate this look! So, tonight I am going to prep my nails with the Sally Hansen Nail Rehab and tomorrow night, I will recreate the Candy Cane look! Follow me on Instagram for updates as I will certainly post my finished look (as long as it turns out decent, lol, and doesn't look like it should end up on a "nailed it" DIY post).
Sally Hansen is one of my go-to drugstore brands for high-quality and long lasting polish. Their Miracle Gel formula is awesome! I get much longer wear with Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel. Plus, it is so easy! You just use the color gel and then top it off with the clear gel topcoat. No light needed!
